Tamika’s MS Journey

LaNita Thurman Turner – Her Story – from the book The MS Project

July 22nd, 2011 by Laina Turner

When I was thinking of what one(s) of the many stories about my mother I wanted to share it was hard to choose. Finally, I decided on one that not only is funny but also shows what a great attitude my mother had. It took place in the early 90’s and we were going to a mother/daughter banquet at the church. My mother loved these events as they gave her a chance to dress up and get out and see friends. When I arrived to pick her up she tried to no avail to get me to drive us in her car. My sporty Pontiac Firebird wasn’t exactly the easiest car to get in and out of, even more difficult when you were in a wheel chair with little leg strength. However, I didn’t want to drive her Cadillac and insisted we drive my car. Being the good sport that she was she finally agreed. The fact it was a nice spring day out and my car had T-Tops didn’t hurt my cause. We got to the church and enjoyed a nice event. By the end of the evening my mother was happy but very tired. As you know it doesn’t take much to wear you out when you have MS. I wheeled her out to the car and we started our normal wheel chair to car seat routine. She put her hands around my neck and I put mine around her waist and I lifted until she was standing up with me holding her. I turned her a little bit so she could slide into the car and started to lower her down. This is where it gets funny.

Excuse me please, I need a seat

A great post by LIsa Emrich


Excuse me please, I need a seat

Thursday morning I traveled into Washington DC by riding the metro. It was a surprisingly easy trip really. However there was one minor bump right at the beginning of the trip. 

I began the metro trip with my Mom, who uses the metro to get to work every day. Even at 6:20am and being only the 4th station from the end of the orange line, the train was full. Lots of people rushed from the platform to get on board. I was not quite as fast (or aggressive) as many of the business people were.

One thing I know is that it would be very difficult for me to stand on the metro train while it is in motion. Although I’ve been doing pretty well lately without too much difficulty with my legs, my balance is impaired. I’m not able to respond too quick changes in movements. Read More….
